Re: Any way to mount a fog light on an i3 ?

Yep. On my Prius, the fog lights did *NOTHING* compared to the main headlights. It took just the right conditions to even verify they turned on from inside the car.

Re: Charge while on vacation?

If only a week, just make sure any timed preconditioning is off and it's safe to leave unplugged.

Re: Tera and Smokers package

The ashtray makes a handy storage container. It’s a tall-ish cylinder not unlike a reusable cup with a flip top. Mine lives in the second cup holder under the armrest. I stash napkins and those long green splash sticks from Starbucks in mine. I hadn't even thought of using it as a center console or...

Re: Tera and Smokers package

It's just a plug-in cigarette lighter for the 12v outlet under the center armrest (otherwise it would just come with a plastic cap like the other 12v outlets) and an ash tray that you put in the cup holder. I immediately tossed both in storage in my basement upon driving my car home.

Re: Electric charge insufficient

Yeah, it rather stupidly says that if you're too far from your "home charging station" you have set. Makes road trips ridiculous. "Yes, BMW, I know I'm more than 80 miles from my home charger, I'm asking you to take me 3 miles to the hotel in the town I'm in, when I already have 90% battery."

Re: 2019 Model 3 vs 2014 BMW i3-REx

Around here, CCS chargers prices can vary wildly. Some of them have a fixed price, regardless of how much charge you put in, others are a per-minute, others are a per-kWh.

Re: Bimmercode hold state of charge.

No, the car will not let you open the gas tank door while the car is on. Do not try to defeat that, as it will not depressurize the tank, and you risk fire by spraying pressurized gas vapor if you try to force the tank open.

Re: i3 versus pedestrians accident near NYC today

Story doesn't mention it being an electric car at all, just that it jumped the curb. Which is nice, a news story that just reports "car did a thing," rather than "OMG! EVS ARE HORRIBLE, SEE HOW ONE ALMOST KILLED SOMEONE!"

Re: Use car or BMW connect to find missing keyless entry fobs?

Nope. The fobs have no speaker, so even if there was a way to initiate reverse communication, there's nothing you could do to make it findable.

Some cars have two-way key fobs with some sort of sound generator, but not the i3.

Look in to a Tile or similar to put on your key fob.

Re: Custom License Plate - Wife Very Angry - Need Advice

My DW will not let me put this new custom license plate frame on the i3: https://images.hvtraffic.com/images/2019/05/08/20190508213018-b39677b1.png There was a thread somewhere that joked about creating a Facebook profile named OPEC LOL.
